Community Resource Program

Community Resource Program

The Community Resource Program (CRP) is provided at 29 elementary schools across Waterloo Region. At these schools, families have access to a Community Resource Worker (CRW) for a variety of services:

Consultations are private, one time, in-person meetings provided to parents at the school to discuss their mental health concerns or questions about community services.

Resource Coordination Services connect families with a Community Resource Worker for 30 days of personalized support with accessing mental health services and other community services that will help the family achieve their goals, e.g., attending Front Door walk-in sessions with families, helping to complete applications for financial assistance, or providing support with navigating the mental health system.

Coffee Connections are parent workshops that provide opportunities for parents to learn more tools, approaches, and information on wellness. Workshops are offered monthly at each school. Examples of workshop topics are; Managing Your Own Anxiety, Parenting a Child with ADHD, and What is Self-Care?

Additionally, the Community Resource Program supports schools with their “Moving on Mental Health Strategy” by providing one time “Tools for Life” In-class Consultations and Booster Sessions that teach social and emotional management skills to children. Overall, this program works alongside families and schools to pursue the well-being of children and families.

The Community Resource Program exists at these Waterloo Region schools for 2016-2017 :
